    I love setting goals for CrossFit, it makes me work so much harder to reach them. I don’t feel that strong at chin ups at all, but I have been making progress with pull ups! I feel like all the lifting stuff in CrossFit is kinda how you explained your deadlifts. It is so hard to wrap your mind around but once you do you become unstoppable. I struggled with deadlifts when I started back in June, I used my back more than my legs/hips so I couldn’t go very heavy at all. Once it “clicked” i’ve been able to move up in weights and just maxed out yesterday at 200lbs!! Keep working on it an you’ll get it!

    What’s the difference between a pull up and a chin up?
    Good job lady! Keep it up!

      It’s the grip. With pull ups, the back of your hands are facing towards you when gripping the bar, and in a chin up they’re facing away from you.

    Haha that’s quite a trip, even longer than my 10 days from Chicago to KC to Colorado to Boston and back to Chicago! And I managed to do it all in a carry-on! My recommendation is figure out where you can do laundry, because if you can then just bring a couple workout outfits and re-wash those, along with some basic pants or shirts that you can re-use for different outfits.

    Okay, sorry. πŸ™‚ I love me some blue cheese. I’m going to have to try blue cheese on scrambled eggs now. I think that’ll be tonight’s side dish!

    Multiple suitcases is a really good idea! Will you be visiting any Whole Foods in the Palm Beach area??

        Awesome! That’s my Whole Foods! It’s cross the street from my house. (I would have to stay it is the smallest Whole Foods I’ve been too. There meat selection is lacking. Maybe you can talk to them about that!!:) I will have to make sure to stop by:)

    I definitely think multiple bags or suitcases is the way to go!

    Breaking it down like that sounds like a good plan. I would suggest making a list. Think about the outfits your going to need for each day. It’s a lot of work, but it will keep you from overpacking and feeling overwhelmed.

    I can’t offer any advice concerning the packing, but good luck! Also, nice work on the chin-ups. When I first was able to pull-ups again (after not having done them in years), I was thrilled and felt SO strong! πŸ™‚

    I would say a large suitcase with a duffel bag in it. 3 bags would get overwhelming. Think of the big suitcase as “homebase” and the duffel as the immediate use bag.

    Good call on the separate suitcases. I do this all the time when traveling for college sports-one for real clothes, one for gym/workout/sport uniform clothes.
    It makes it really easy to find things and keep things together/apart. You may want to keep your toiletries and such in another small bag/case. Then all you have to grab is that and the proper suitcase.

    Im so glad you are enjoying CrossFit! I knew you would.

    3 separate bags sounds like a good idea. Especially if you will have the trunk of your car to store them in and just change out the toiletries.

    I already have one crossfit goal and I haven’t even started. I want to be able to do at least 2 unassisted pull ups by the end.
    The last time I could do these was 10 years ago. *sigh*

    When we went to CA for 12 days this summer, I packed 1 big suitcase and rolled all my outfits together – shirt and shorts. Anything that is thin and doesn’t matter if its wrinkled went on top, shoes on bottom, and I wore bulkier stuff on the plane. I think I had pinned something that told me how to pack well too. Have fun!

    I’ve always wanted to do an unassisted pull-up. I need to make it a goal and get after it!
